Probably a silly question, but whats the trick to taking these photos without ending up with odd colours?   Any attempt i made just came out purplish, do i just need a better camera?

You can rest the camera on books or anything. As long as you use the timer it's steady.

Tripod just makes it easier...great tubes...cheers!

The blue glow is caused by electrons bombarding the glass envelope. Some glass will emit blue glow when bombarded by electrons.

It is common in many types of power tubes. My Sovtek 5881 seem to emit more blue as they age, but that is just an observation.

These are 5881 power tubea:
